We all know that wine pairs spectacularly well with fine food. But have you ever wondered about beer? Did you know that traditional beer pairs every bit as well with food as wine, and in some cases even better? Beer’s incredible versatility can make ordinary meals extraordinary and extraordinary meals unforgettable!

Chef Jacques Haeringer and team cordially invite you to for a very special Winterlude Artisanal Beer Dinner Experience on Friday, January 28th at 6:00pm. Chef Jacques will be preparing a delicious meal using beers from local brewers and from around the globe. Each course will then be paired with a different brew, highlighting the complementary qualities of each and enhancing your culinary experience. Local beer extraordinaire cicerone/sommelier & importer Brian Hennighausen will be on hand to lead a fun, educational and delicious guided tasting experience!

Merci beaucoup and see you there!
